Winter Care for Afro Hair – Keep Your Tresses Moisturised
It’s important to protect your hair during the harsher winter months if you want your afro or multi-textured hair to look great. The cold winter air can leave your hair drier than usual which means it can become brittle and break or turn frizzy. The good news is that regular hair cuts and conditioning treatments will put the moisture back into your hair and make it more manageable. At Afrotherapy hair salon in Edmonton we have a number of great treatments that will add moisture to your hair.
These include: Mizani Moisturfusion – For relaxed, natural and colour-treated hair, Moisturfusion is infused with moisturisers, essential oils and proteins to moisturise, soften and strengthen dry hair. Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask – A 5-minute revival treatment that hydrates and conditions while dramatically improving the hair’s texture, elasticity, shine and manageability. Mizani Curl Replenish® Intense Moisturising Masque – Designed to inject moisture into naturally curly hair.
Winter Care for Afro Hair – Use Less Heat
Heat from styling tools can also dry your hair out. Limit the use of heated styling tools and try experimenting with other styling methods that avoid hot styling techniques.
Winter Care for Afro Hair – Try Protective Styles like Weaves or Braids
During the winter months try weaves or braids or put your hair in an updo or bun to protect the ends of your hair from breakage.
